A Reportfag is a subspecies of snitch indigenous to social media, and is the result of cross breeding social justice warriors with trolls. Their primary method of attack is anonymously reporting posts that are politically incorrect. The general belief is that the reportfag exists to cleanse everyone's online experience of offensive content, and while that may be a secondary motive, they receive a more immediate gratification in the antagonized responses they get from their natural enemy, the Edgelord. After a successful round of reporting, the reportfag can expect to be showered with butt-flustered posts crying that their freedom to spout racial slurs and post pictures of horse cock on a public platform has been violated.
The History of Reportfagging
While the act of whining to the mods has been around since the dawn of the man, reportfags didn't come to prominence until after Facebook became bigger than the internet. Prior to Facebook, reportfags were mostly ineffective as their only means of reporting was to send an angry letter hoping that the offensive content gets removed; however, it was more likely that these reports were ignored by the admins because lol nobody cares. It wasn't until Facebook began allowing anonymous reporting and banning accounts did the reportfag receive any type of gratification for their efforts. After realizing that they can make people upset by forcing them to spend precious minutes opening a new account, reportfags put on their best trollface and weaponized the reporting process, creating mass confusion as their victims lashed out against the invisible moralfag boogeyman for creating minor inconveniences.
The Future of Reportfagging
—Angela Merkel's vision of the future
According to the Facebook Community Standards, hate-speech is considered to be an attack directed at race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, disability or disease. Facebook does, however, explicitly state that humour, satire, and social commentary directed at all of the aforementioned topics is permissible, although this tends to be overlooked most reportfags are completely unable to differentiate between the authentic and the parodic, a phenomenon almost certainly attributed to the average specimen being a grotesque, hollow caricature of a human being. Facebook--alongside Google and Twitter--has agreed on a deal with the German government to insure that all hate speech is removed from within 24 hours ; those well-versed in European history will notice that this is not the first time the German government has made strident attempts to censor the dialogue of its people. It is now extremely common to receive a 30 day ban for application of good, wholesome words such as nigger or faggot, even for posts that were original published months before the ban has been put in order; it can therefore be postulated that the overall level of reportfagging will continue to rise in a somewhat ghastly fashion. As previously mentioned, a 30 day ban isn't of any real hindrance, seeing as a sock account can be established in a matter of minutes.
As a meme
Example of Reportception:
Pleb 1: I really like this site and the people on it.
Pleb 2: Reported
Pleb 1: Reported for reporting
Pleb 3: Reported for reporting a reporter
Pleb 4: Reported for reporting a reporter who reports reports
Pleb 5: Reported for reporting a report reported reporter report report report
This chain will continue until mom hits a combo-breaker and declares that dinner is ready.
Below is a series of quotes from ED's own facebook group responding to reportfags:
In November 2015, the collective Anonymous declared victory as they "hacked" 9000 ISIS Twitter accounts and had them all purged. Their method of hacking involved recording the name of everyone who retweeted something pro-ISIS and reporting their profile to @support. While it's blatantly clear why reportfagging != hacking in any way shape or form, we still give Anon a consoling pat on the head knowing that real hackers haven't palled around with them since 2011 and they're still trying their best to
make a difference stay relevant.
Where do the reports go
All reports are handled by slave children in Morocco who work in a sweatshop for $1 a day weeding through hundreds of thousands of reports determining which ones are valid (No really, you thought South Park was joking? ). The ultimate irony is that social justice warriors are exploiting a very serious human rights violation by using slave workers in third-world economies to troll people. But who cares about little Akmud being exposed to gore and child pornography for pennies an hour when micro-aggressions are running rampant on the internet, amirite?
How to stop a reportfag
There's two ways to stop a reportfag: Either stop doing things they can report, or don't acknowledge them when they report you. Free speech does not apply to private entities such as Facebook so your cries of justice are unfounded and ignorant. Witch hunts are pointless because they never admit to what they are doing. Or you can simply do the right thing and stop supporting facebook altogether, but we realize that asking you to spend your time on a website that doesn't have a smartphone app is a bit much.
